WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross wrote on Twitter that several sources have confirmed to him that Brock Lesnar vs Goldberg is a done deal for the Survivor Series this year.
Dave Meltzer at the Observer also adds that the rumors were that the deal was completed over the weekend for the two to meet for the second time next month in Toronto, 12 years after their disastrous encounter at WrestleMania XX in 2004.
Goldberg has not wrestled for the WWE since that match in Madison Square Garden and then had a big fallout with the company where things turned ugly. Things however got better over the years and Goldberg always expressed his desire to wrestle one more time in front of his son, who never saw him in the ring live.
Earlier this year 2K sort of facilitated the talks even more when they cut a deal with Goldberg to be the pre-order character for WWE 2K17 and the former World Heavyweight champion said several times to the media while promoting the game that if it were up to him, he’d be in a WWE ring one more time.
Goldberg will be appearing on ESPN’s SportsCenter tonight with Jonathan Coachman during the weekly WWE segment to promote WWE 2K17.
